Tourmaline Quartz Properties & Uses

Tourmaline Quartz, also known as “the remover of obstacles,” is an extremely grounding and healing crystal containing both Black Tourmaline and Clear Quartz! While the Quartz provides a clarifying and highly conscious energy, the Black Tourmaline keeps you grounded and connected to Gaia. Tourmaline Quartz is known for clearing and transmuting energies, especially when it comes to toxicity in an environment, and it also blocks any negative/ill energies entering your space. 

This stone alleviates any “worst-case scenario” mind-chatter and grounds you into the present moment, being a powerful tool during any type of meditation, therapy, or energy healing sessions. A balancer of yin and yang energies, protector, and tension alleviator, Tourmaline Quartz helps with any out-of-body experiences. Its other properties include clearing self-sabotage, protecting against radiation, harmonizing meridians, and balancing/cleansing all chakras.

How to use & where to place in your home

To keep your house protected and clear of any negative energies trying to enter it, place Tourmaline Quartz at the entrance of your home on both sides of the door. Keep it near or on you during meditation, yoga, or energy healing sessions to keep you grounded and clear-headed. And for days when you're feeling specially heavy with bad energies, keep this crystal on you and levity will enter your body.
